Detailed Description

Code that uses the MPI parallel library.

To enable this module, you must first install an MPI library and then make sure that the mpic++ binary is in the PATH (e.g. on a RedHat/Fedora system, you may need to run module load mpich or similar) before you run cmake. (There is no need to build all of IMP with mpic++ - that would force all of IMP to need the MPI library, not just the IMP.mpi module.)

Standard module functions

All IMP modules have a set of standard functions to help get information about the module and about files associated with the module.

std::string get_module_version ()
 
std::string get_module_name ()
 
std::string get_data_path (std::string file_name)
 Return the full path to one of this module's data files. More...

Function Documentation

std::string IMP::mpi::get_data_path ( std::string  file_name)

Return the full path to one of this module's data files.

To read the data file "data_library" that was placed in the data directory of this module, do something like

std::ifstream in(IMP::mpi::get_data_path("data_library"));

This will ensure that the code works both when IMP is installed or if used via the setup_environment.sh script.

Note
Each module has its own data directory, so be sure to use this function from the correct module.
std::string IMP::mpi::get_example_path ( std::string  file_name)

Return the full path to one of this module's example files.

To read the example file "example_protein.pdb" that was placed in the examples directory of this module, do something like

std::ifstream in(IMP::mpi::get_example_path("example_protein.pdb"));

This will ensure that the code works both when IMP is installed or if used via the setup_environment.sh script.

Note
Each module has its own example directory, so be sure to use this function from the correct module.
